The HTN Now health tech tour continues in November, when we bring together the health tech community to share, discuss and collaborate on a variety of topics focused around health technology for the now.
The sessions we host typically last up to one hour, providing practical advice, insight and learning from healthcare digital teams across the country. Tune in to hear about their approach, what they have done, what worked well, the challenges they face and what’s coming up next.
For this two-day virtual event we welcome Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust, The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, and Digital Health and Care Wales.
Liverpool Women’s Hospital are undertaking a significant digital transformation programme, introducing MEDITECH Expanse EPR replacing a number of legacy systems and processes. Clinical Leadership is at the heart of our programme and during this session we will share our journey and explore What Good Looks Like in this regard.

These days it goes without saying that where there is a digital health project there is training. Whether virtual, e-learning or in person, it is widely understood that training is key to a successful go-live. However, with the challenge of training large volumes and ensuring knowledge is retained, many digital health projects are struggling to achieve real adoption with simple training. The truth is that these days training on its own does not suffice – to deliver results an adoption programme should be change led, with training as one of many tools available.

From print to digital for better child health
To support the drive to digitise healthcare, the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health has developed a Growth Charts API to accurately calculate centiles for a child’s height, weight, head circumference and BMI for digital growth assessments. Child growth assessment is important, whether detecting serious illness or helping to manage the obesity crisis, and it involves complex data and statistics.
A multi-disciplinary group of experts, from clinical paediatrics, nutrition, health informatics, statistics and programming, has now created the award-winning API (Application Programming Interface). It enables developers of EPRs to build apps and interfaces that will give clinicians solid data to improve care, and parents online access to their child’s growth records.
